TOMS® began as a simple idea while Blake Mycoskie, founder of the company, was traveling in Argentina in 2006. He witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes and wanted to help, so he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a new pair of shoes for a child in need. And the idea of One for One® was born.
TOMS also dreamed up the alpargata-inspired Classics shoe that comes in a variety of materials like canvas, tweed, wool, burlap, mesh and crochet. And each style features their signature classic toe stitching, elastic v-panel, suede leather footbed, and a flexible rubber outsole. These shoes are made for all-day wear whether you are simply walking the city streets or traveling the world.
While the Classics have been a favorite for years, TOMS also offers a variety of other footwear styles for men, women, and kids. Women’s styles like the Desert Wedge, Nepal Boot, Del Rey sneaker and TOMS leather booties have become fast favorites. And their fashion winter boots are perfect for city or country walks. TOMS men's shoes like the Paseo, Chukka Boot, and Brogue styles offer a laid-back yet handsome look in a variety of durable fabric uppers and reliable rubber outsole that will last for years to come. TOMS kids footwear collection has all the same qualities of style and durability as the adults with a variety of loafers, boots, sneakers, and flats to choose from.
The TOMS Bag Collection reflects the traditional textiles seen worldwide and each tote, crossbody, and hobo bag offer both fashion and functionality. Their durable canvas, soft suede leather, and felt materials offer long-lasting durability, while the roomy, organized interiors make them ideal everyday use. These bags are so functional, you can take them to the farmer’s market or use them as your traveling companion!
TOMS Eyewear features a variety of looks from wayfarer-inspired sunglasses, sleek aviator frames, to superstar-inspired oversized styles. Many of the sunglasses have 100% UVA/UVB protection and polarized options are available as well. TOMS provides prescription glasses, medical treatment and/or sight-saving surgery in thirteen countries, so with every purchase, you the customer, provide the opportunity to restore sight to a person in need.
What began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model, and with every TOMS product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One®.
love how these look and length seems good, but 8.5 just a bit too narrow for my toes. I think I'm an 8.75 in TOMS as the 9 is a bit too loose!
Love but a little small. Going to exchange for half size larger
It felt a little too bulk and uncomfortable
These shoes are relatively low (not much vertical space) from instep through toe-box, which does not work for my foot. Not enough room for my preferred insole without going up in size (and then too long). They are good-looking, a bit like a "dressy" Chuck Taylor.
Cute and comfortable! I wear a 6.5 in various TOMS styles, therefore I ordered 6.5 in these. I recommend sizing a half size down. They are cloth and stretch, and I'm already stepping out of the heel in these. Nonetheless, they're still comfortable and versatile.
Love these! Bought them while pregnant for easy slip-on shoes that would be comfortable and still look work-appropriate. Couldn't be happier. I'm normally a size 9 and had to size up to a 9.5
Warning: Tom's Seasonal Classics and Toms Classics fit differently. The seasonal classics are wider and I love them. Classics however, have made painful red marks in my feet, even after trying to break them multiple times. I do not have wide feet, in fact, they are on the narrow side. Sadly, I have already worn these outside and cannot return. They are a complete waste as I cannot wear them. I even tried on a half size bigger and they slipped off the back of my foot so it is clearly a width issue. Such a shame that Toms does not make the classics and seasonal classics the same, unless I just got a bad pair. I am very unhappy with these shoes.
These are the cutest shoes but my goodness are they painful to wear. I have worn them 3 times and NEVER again. I have a relatively narrow foot and they are still so tight.
Comfy and cute!!
I ordered a half a size down as another review suggested. I found that they work with or without socks and seem to expand just a bit with wear. I was pleased with these shoes.
